Advice to Management
Politics cannot be avoided :(
I applied online. I interviewed at Microsoft (Mountain View, CA (US)) in June 2014.
The interview include a telephone screening and on-site interview with 5 people from same group. The interview questions is relatively easy. The on-site interview took a day and includes lunch with one of the group members. All people asked coding questions and some of them are more focused on domain knowledge than others. I thought I have passed the interview but then the HR came back and said they have hired more experience candidates.
